When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The National City Blvd / Civic Center Dr neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, National City Blvd / Civic Center Dr is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the National City Blvd / Civic Center Dr neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 92.1%, which is higher than 97.6% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
Furthermore, the National City Blvd / Civic Center Dr neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 81.7% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the National City Blvd / Civic Center Dr neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 40.2% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 99.9% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The National City Blvd / Civic Center Dr neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than
99.7% of other U.S. neighborhoods. If you come here, you
will notice military people active in their jobs, going to and from work,
and in plain clothes out and about the neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Significantly, 7.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Tagalog, which is the first language of the Philippine region, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
